Commercial vehicle parts supplier, Transport Supplies NI Ltd, has taken delivery of its second LDV van from Mallusk-based Belfast Truck & Van Ltd (BTV).
Transport Supplies were one of the first van fleet operators in Northern Ireland to put its faith in the all-new LDV when it was re-introduced to the UK and Irish markets last year. Following a week-long trial with BTV’s V80 demonstrator, Transport Supplies made its first purchase in September, which has been followed by a second van delivered recently.
Adrian Hamill, Director at Transport Supplies, explained, “The initial appeal for us was the reasonable pricing and five-year warranty, but during the test period the V80 performed well. It was economical, comfortable to drive and the size of the van suited our needs”.
The first LDV was purchased to replace a van that was due for renewal, but earlier this year when a decision was made to increase the Transport Supplies fleet, the Company opted for another V80.
Adrian continued, “Any apprehension that we may have had about the LDV didn’t last long. We were impressed with the standard specification of the van. The first one had everything we needed, even including seat covers and mats at delivery. In terms of running performance and maintenance, the van has done really well for us over the last six months.”
